A probable cause hearing is scheduled for early November for a Lawrence man charged with armed assault to rape, indecent assault and battery, and kidnapping. In late September, a woman alleges she met 46-year-old Frank Harrison at a party in Lowell and stopped at his Tewksbury hotel room with him on the way to another party, when he attempted to rape her at knifepoint.
